“Fabulous hotel.”
Reviewed November 28, 2011

Fabulous hotel with extremely friendly and helpful staff. Great location too and lots to see and do in Yeovil. Couldn't find a single negative thing to say about this "Sleep Boutique". Would love to stay here again, best night's sleep in a hotel ever.

Being in the trade with over 30 years experience, travelling the world staying in five star hotels, I was amazed to see such spacious, beautifully decorated rooms finished with high specifications, Fantastic place to stay, outstanding value for money and great hosts both Richard, Isobel and the young lady who served continental breakfast, extremely friendly and very proud to show off the "The Keep" and so they should be. Will definitely rebook and recommend to friends and family. The only place to stay in Yeovil, if you find complaints with "The Keep" you'll never be satisfied, brilliant place to stay .....

Fantastic - everything is top quality from the soft furnishings to the power of the shower. This 'sleep boutique' deserves to be full every night because the value for money is excellent. If you are planning a trip to Yeovil this is the place to stay - if you are disappointed then you could never be satisfied.

We recently stayed here as my husband was on business in the area and have the say the facilities are excellent and we had a most enjoyable stay.

The homemade cake with the tea tray was a lovely touch and much appreciated.

Superb value and will definitely be recommending to our family and friends and will be staying again - hopefully soon.

A gem of a place - beautifully and thoughtfully furnished, extra touches such as the guest utility area with cutlery and microwaves a huge bonus, excellent hosts who ensured our stay was a pleasure - we cannot recommend it highly enough.
The wet room bathroom (room 4) was brilliant - we loved it! Huge towels and plenty of them (it's a girl thing!), even shuffling the car around in the morning (parking is a tad tight) didn't detract from our stay. Great selection of food for breakfast ensured we set off for our onward trip replete and very satisfied. Thanks to you all for making our stay so fabulous. I really hope we can use the Tower Suite next time! Jacki & Evelyn

I stay in Yeovil on business almost every week and have always struggled to find a suitable hotel, I stumbled across The Keep via search on the internet, all I can say is I'm glad I did. The rooms are as good as you would find in any four star hotel, large, modern, clean and tastefuly designed. I was that impressed I immediately booked rooms for my next visit to Yeovil. Its not very often I would say it but I would highly recommend this establishment for anyone looking for quality. It doesnt have a bar or restaurant, although breakfast is cooked freshly for you,however, its location is just off the High street where there are a few bars and restaurants within a few minutes, we actually dined at the Green Rooms which served supperb food, yet again worth recommending.

I found this place kinda by accident but took heart from the recommendations on the booking website. It is very hard to believe it has only been open 5 weeks but by golly have they got it right. I travel alot with business and I have to say the quality of the rooms/ furnishings/ welcome are all top class, better than many chains and probably better than alot of the London hotels I've been in. Very comfy beds, large LCD tellies...you cannot go wrong.
I scooped this place for £70 b&b and felt guilty that it was so cheap....stay there and as you walk out of the rear car park, take a look at the b&b opposite and thank your lucky stars you aren't in there!! Truly first class and I will be back. See you soon

Room Tip: I'd probably ask for a room at the back if you are a light sleeper. Rooms on the front might suf...
